Malaysian officials decide to penalize The Pussycat Dolls for their 'sexually suggestive' act while performing in Kuala Lumpur.
The ever-energetic The Pussycat Dolls gave more than the Malaysian audience have bargained for. Two of the girls flashed out their private parts for all the audience to see when they performed in the Asian country's capital, Kuala Lumpur during their world tour in 2006.
Carmit Bachar who wore a white tank top and green 'barely there' vest accidentally popped out her left nipple while hot pants-wearing Ashley Roberts squatted as part of the dance routine only to 'open up' what was between her legs. Photos of the mishaps can be seen on TheSun.co.uk. Carmit is no longer part of the group starting this year when she announced her departure to pursue solo career.
The country that is binded with strict Muslim policies have taken an action for this by fining the concert promoter $3,400 for going against the dress code of performers. The Sun reported that the fining is reasoned based on the "sexually suggestive" routines.
Malaysia has been notorious of having several rules for performers especially the female ones, whereby one of its concern is the dress code. Female performers must cover up to their shoulders and below their knees. Also, shouting, jumping and throwing objects on and off stage are banned. Gwen Stefani and Beyonce Knowles have embroiled in this situation last year. While the former chose to amend the situation, the latter canceled the gig and traded it with a gig in Jakarta, Indonesia.
